The 2013 adaptation of Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella is to have its UK premiere as a semi-staged concert at Cadogan Hall.
Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella is the Tony Award-winning musical from the creators of South Pacific and The Sound of Music that has delighted American audiences with its contemporary take on the classic fairy tale.
The semi-staged concert, directed by Johnathan O’Boyle (The View Upstairs, Hair, Aspects of Love, Pippin), will feature some of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most beloved songs, including ‘In My Own Little Corner,’ ‘Impossible/It’s Possible’ and ‘Ten Minutes Ago,’ alongside a new book by Tony Award-nominee Douglas Carter Beane, as well as some new characters and surprising twists.
